The small paths in Michelle's house are the only way she can get to her collection of more than 60 birds. Her husband of 30 years has been chased from the home by the animals and the hoarded piles that in some places reach five feet high. Michelle must now put her family's needs ahead of her birds and clean the house so that her husband can come home. Kim is a beautiful 34-year-old pharmaceutical sales rep who risks unemployment if she can't get her hoarding under control. Her job requires meticulous records of her legal drug sales, but she can't keep anything organized or find anything in all of her clutter.
